Enables us to use the time that we spent doing manual processing for other progressive purposes

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use for the product is to automate business processes. Mostly this means financial processing. We have a lot of use cases in finance. For finance alone, we have 30+ bots in production. Other bots are for a variety of other business uses like the supply chain, networks, and business processes. We have 400+ bots in production as of now, all together. We have automated business processes, like finance, supply chain, network systems, and payment systems. We are using it on-premise and migrating it to the cloud at the end of the year.

Pros and Cons

  • "The bots we implement free up our time that we spent doing manual processing for other progressive purposes."
  • "We are having trouble creating a reliable and stable situation in our environment."

What other advice do I have?

On a scale of one to ten, one being the worst and ten being the best, I would rate Automation Anywhere as a seven. Because we did not explore any other RPA tool as of now, and we are exploring UI parts without knowing more, it is hard to compare. The only thing that keeps me from rating it higher independently is the stability. Maybe it's stable in some other companies, but somehow we don't seem to share that stability in our environment. Because we have virtual machines that have to be up and running all the time and they are mostly Windows-based, Windows may also one of the reasons why…

User-friendly with great no-coding functionality but needs a better user interface

What is our primary use case?

We didn't actually deploy the solution. It was basically testing the product. It was just some simple testing we were doing. We've tried downloading reports from the new RP system, using RPA, and doing some manual uploading from some PDF files into our ERP. It was just used for some super simple operations to try it out and get a feel for it.

Pros and Cons

  • "I actually quite liked the no-coding functionality."
  • "It's possible that they could use a stronger community for seeking guidance and help."

What other advice do I have?

I'm not sure which version of the solution we're using. So far, from my limited experience, I would recommend the solution to other organizations. However, based on my limited understanding of the product, as I haven't used it for too long just yet, I would rate it at a seven out of ten.

Good PDF OCR reading capabilities, stable, and easy to set up

What is our primary use case?

We are using this solution for PDF reading capabilities for some invoices. We also utilize it to read DW4 forms.

Pros and Cons

  • "Abbyy is really good in terms of reading OCR."
  • "There are certain controls like radio buttons and checkboxes that when reading PDFs, really doesn't go well with the RPA."

What other advice do I have?

It's more trial and error, but Abbyy is still really good in terms of OCR. If you have a consistent use case, then I think that Abbyy is the right fit. I would rate Abbyy Vantage an eight out of ten.
